    No kidding. I just about crapped in my seat when I saw it at the theater. It just looked too wrong to be lovable.

    The elongated alien that came lurching out of the mothership in Close Encounters freaked the hell out of me. The musical score at that moment really added to the effect.

    Poltergeist. Thoughts of that flick would terrify me if I happened to wake up in the middle of the night. Curse that clown. I spent many weeks getting over that mess.


    My friend and I were outside on night and we thought we saw ET in the bushes. We went running in the house screaming.
    What are you people!? On dope!?

    The thing that scared the hell out of me was this ad that Disney had when the Matterhorn(not sure of spelling)ride was made. They had part where they should a shadowy yeti with red glowing eyes.

    I was always terrified of big dogs. Until I was five, I lived in a crowded neighborhood where there were always stray dogs wandering up in my yard. One day I was taking a walk around the block with my mom when these peoples' dogs all came running out and started fighting. It was so scary! I'm still kind of nervous around big dogs.


    For years I was scared of St. Bernards and was convinced that this was a mean breed of dog that should be avoided. Here were my reasons why. Our evil neighbors up the road had one. I would ride by at full speed and many times this giant dog would come after me. Once in a while one of the evil neighbor boys would come after me when I was on my way to my friend's house. Years later, I had a boyfriend with one and he had to keep it locked in his parent's bedroom because the dog didn't like strangers. Then there was "Cujo" by Stephen King.

    I've since done research on the breed and it says they are generally friendly dogs. Cujo was rabid. The evil neighbors' dog would of course be evil just like them. My exboyfriend's dog was probably kept too isolated.

    The Shining scared the hell out of me. I never actually saw it (should rent it someday), but the scene with the bicycle and twins scared me very badly.


    I saw the movie. SCARY! I read the book and it was scary, too!

    Also, when I was young, I used to get scared to death when certain characters die.

    i.e. Mega Man in Megaman X4 and R. Mika in Street Fighter Alpha 3

    Michael Myers. For some reason, he was (and is) the only movie bad guy that scares me. That is, I should say freaks me out as I don't really get scared by movies. And clowns. They scared the ex-food out of me when I was a kid. Still can't stand them. When I was little, a McDonald's down the street was visited by the guy that played Ronald on the commercials. My mom wanted me to go, but you couldn't have paid me a million dollars to do it. And I'm also wary of people that like clowns. Oh, and people who smile all the time....except for Miley Cyrus.

    This may sound stupid, but for some reason, ALF scared the hell out of me. I could watch Alien movies and Childs Play with no real problem. Movies and shows that should have been scary for me just weren't. ALF in the show did not scare me, but my cousin had an stuffed ALF animal hanging in her room. You know how with some pictures, the persons eyes appear to follow you as you move? Well ALF's eyes did just that and I could not go into my cousins room for the life of me. I was scared shitless of that ALF doll. I guess it didn't help matters that my older neighbor friend took it down once and put ALf's mouth on my arm and he pinched me at the same time, I actually thought ALF bit me!


    me too! I remember closing my eyes or leaving the room in a rush when he was on tv * shudder

    Fire.

    I never knew if the house would burn down, but as I got older fires surprise you without you knowing it.

    Thank God our house never caught on fire!

    let's see what scared me most as a child...

    I was scared of the "Nintendo" logo on the Game Boy startup coming out scrambled or replaced by a black rectangle.
    I also had a fear of other people wearing funny looking masks when I was VERY young.

    What scared me most as a teenager (and still my worst fear as a 20+ adult) is Fire Alarms:

    I seriously can't stand the severely loud noise coming out of nowhere when you're not expecting it, having to stop what you're doing, and having to evacuate the building!

    I am sound sensitive

    Not sure the most but I remember running out of the room every time Bruce Banner would start to change into the Hulk. I'd come back to watch after he was done transforming.
